Deputy President of Yemen Abd-Rabu Mansour Hadi

Acting president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi  has meet with the American Ambassador to Sana’a Today. They discuss the on going political crises in Yemen that might help the country to end the current chaos for more than four months. Hadi is ruling a the country according to the Yemeni law article 165 which say that the deputy president take care of the country affairs in the absence of the President .

President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s authoritarian grip on Yemen appeared to be slipping as he arrived in Saudi Arabia for medical treatment for wounds suffered in a rocket attack on his compound.

Saleh, whose Saudi medical evacuation plane was met by a senior Saudi official, walked off the aircraft but had visible injuries on his neck, head and face, a source told Reuters.

His journey to Saudi Arabia came amid speculation from Yemeni and western analysts that it was unlikely that he would be able to return to Yemen if he was forced to seek medical assistance abroad.

Saleh delivered an audio address on television to reassure supporters, but his voice sounded laboured and the address was made accompanied by an old photograph of him on the screen.

Acting president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi was due to meet members of the military and Saleh’s sons, al-Arabiya television said on Sunday. It was the first indication that Saleh’s powerful sons had not also left the country.

A leaderless Yemen would place enormous pressure on Saudi Arabia, which has long played the role of kingmaker for its much smaller, and infinitely poorer, neighbour.

The violence in the country grew out of pro-democracy protests that has turned into a power struggle between Saleh’s ruling clique and his former allies in the Ahmar clan.
